Track Name: Out on the Town
When I wake up to you
We never want to move
But we’re never still for long.
The time is ticking, waiting for

When you need to go
Baby and when I’ve gotta stay at home.
Now you’re here let’s make the most,
As twice a week isn’t enough.

We said we’d go out with them
But you’re better than my best friends.

I should really be out on the town.
I should really be out on the town.
I said I’d be out on the town,
But I’d rather just not go out.
Put it off more

You’re the most simple thing.
I don’t need to try and love you within.
The pleasure comes so quick,
I can pour myself the perfect drink

Even when we’re just at home.
Our time is better spent alone
So let’s catch up lying down.
The thing we need it beauty sleep.
Track Name: Know That I'll Be Near
Know that I’ll be near
Don’t look or fear
There’s no need to remember me.

Know that I’ll be near
a weekend or a year
I love life, don’t need it after.

It’s nice to sit and think on,
Where I’ll be in a hundred years.
Will I jump from tongue to tongue?
Be long on the famous train?

But really when I go,
It won’t make a difference if you say my name,
I won’t know.
Instead I’ll be happy,
Knowing that my life is enough.

Well who knows what’ll come of me,
It’s all an uncertainty.
Unless I live to hear it said,
Not to know is comforting.

Fooo dah….

It’s nice to recognise when
someone's done a helpful thing.
When they go the deed is still done.
Why need their name?
Just learn from it.
Track Name: Blood
Too tired to move,
A late night again.
It’s come and gone,
My ticket up to bed

Give me something for my blood,
For my blood, for my blood
As tonight I can’t get up
I feel heavier, somehow I yearn.

I wanna realise
How I got stuck down
There must be something new
I don’t usually feel this down

Then you realise you miss them,
And that life’s unfair as we only just met.
Three weeks have gone since we said yes
But is it too soon to tell them I miss you?
Track Name: Home in Your Heart
Ebmaj7 Dbmaj7 Ebmaj
Run away from me.


Ebmaj
I can’t get enough of you.


Ebmaj7 Dbmaj7 Ebmaj
The only way she’ll see me


Ebmaj
Is to give her enough of a clue.


Ab Abmaj7
I’ll wait two - oooo ,


Ab Abmaj7
Two weeks till I ask


Ab Abmaj7
Give you clue - ues,


Ab Abmaj7
Enough to say at last


Eb Ebmaj7
I wanna be a home on your heart


Ebm7 B
Open the door when it is dar - ark.


Eb Ebmaj7
Wanna be a home in your heart,


Ebm7 Db
Let me know when I can star - art.

Baby have you seen
Me running with you?
I hope you’re not ignoring.
I can’t believe that’s you

I’ll wait two,
Two weeks till I ask.
With no clues.
I’ll just say it right out.

I’ll wait two,
Two weeks till I ask.
With no clues.
I’ll just spell it right out.
Track Name: Edge Cheetah
Dust,
Sniff it off the key.
Up,
High instead of clean.

I wanna know Ben,
I wanna know Ben better.
Cut it again,
Suck it up when you need that fix.

Must,
Must feel the ease.
Spend,
The money made to keep, there’s no need.

Give it up when,
Give it up when you feel.
Cut it again,
Suck it up when you need that fix.

Oh oh you’re on the edge cheetah
Oh oh you’re on the edge cheetah
I knew you were friendlier

When you were in our world
When you were in our world
When you were in our world
Oh oh you’re on the edge.

Drugs,
Keep you company,
Now lost,
You drift behind a sea of no need.

Should,
I should of been around.
To keep, keep
You familiar old friend.

I wanna know Ben,
I wanna know Ben better.
You need an old friend,
You need an old friend instead of that fix.
Track Name: Been Waiting
Gone yesterday,
The world has led astray,
An eye once on mystery.

Where has it gone,
The veil you put on?
I look down on you and I know you less.

I’d been waiting just to hold you,
Gotta to learn to love.
I devoted time for two.
Not a thing above

Feeling sure “We’re gonna make it”
Oh no I didn’t try.
Wishing more of me had let go
And taught myself to ride.

We didn’t know what we were looking for.
It was a test.
He tricked us and all of the rest.

Confidence is what we’re looking for
To let go.
But it’s so hard,
To see the bigger scene,
And better things.

I’m wasting time,
But still I stand in line.
What you know does hold you back.

Round here things should change.
We’ll want it back again,
But to look ahead is a harder way.

I’d been waiting just to hold you,
Gotta to learn to love.
I devoted time for two.
Not a thing above

Part of me wants to hate it.
All the times we were.
Thinking once on a life time,
In a part of your world.
Track Name: Ready When You Are
Can’t this work somehow?
But I don’t want you now.
You filled my heart with gold.
Since then I’ve grown cold.

Though I miss you so but when I ask my soul,
I don’t want to love.
Now what seems more important to me,
Is what I get done.

I’m ready when you are,
I’ve got it right in my soul (in my soul)
It’s telling me work hard work hard time is precious.

Just “relax”
Is not a word I know (that I know)
You kept me loved and simple looking inwards.

Blowing, blowing
Cool me down
Blowing, blowing
Cool my empty heart.

Now I drown my time
Drunk on busy wine
Trying not to feel
How I need you near.

Will it be,
Always so for me?
I can’t love,
I can’t hate,
I’m immune in a way.
Is it good,
Is it me,
To loose the way that i feel?
Will it be,
Will it be me?
Track Name: Down in the Dumps
Listening for the sound of sadness I
Hear, Little warmth and only me.
Looking at you your eyes are downcast as I
Fear, you’ve gone and lost, you’ve lost the key.
I’m living just, just enough for me so I
Didn’t, realise how you feel…
How you feel.

Well they’re all around
They’re all around for you
They’re mending the start
Mending the start with two.

When I see you
I give it back, give it back.
When I see you
You go go go go go.

Down in the dumps where we don’t say
How are you? It’ll be alright.
Down in the dumps down a long way
In time it’ll be alright.

Watching, wasting all the hours in time,
Let go let go is it enough
To ease, ease the pain of problems ingrained
Ages ago? Done for since
Do more! People push you harder to be
and don’t realise how you feel.
How you feel.
Track Name: Gonna Do
A temptation
I thought my love was stronger
A little sensation
I hold my breath for longer.

Oh no well I don’t know you
and that I'm innocent I can’t prove.

The party on my birthday
was all thanks down to you.
Though my skin was so grateful
the touch of new was to lose.

So I chose not to be so good
When you went I believed I could
with no - o - o consequences.

Baby please,
What are you gonna gonna do?
Let me stay and I’ll still love you.
Baby Please,
What are you gonna gonna say?
Open arms and let me through.

A little drop,
It can stop,
Is our love serious enough?
Is our love gonna do?

I tell it to you like that
but the wind she said it for longer
well I was so reticent
to keep you mine and stronger.

So I chose not to be so good
With the mind that you understood with no,
So I chose just to lie to you
With the mind that you understood with no,
Consequences.

My guy strikes me down with eagerness
His blood runs hot for
The prospect to split with me
“I’d take you back if you pleaded”

Would you love me more if you needed it?
Track Name: La Loula
We’re sitting all around,
We’re trying to work it out, our next year.
At seven pounds a pint,
This place is rather nice and we’re

Going on and on
And then we get to one sore point.
As you’re the drama queen
You run off and sulk…

Let go let go It’s not so bad.
Oh will you go easy?
Oh we can see without you doing that.
We know we know

When you act strange,
When you play games.
And then I’m the one to turn the pages.
Instead of whatever (Instead of whatever)
All I say is,

La Loula
You do what you want.
La Loula
Cos you can’t keep it calm,
But we’re chilled out
Cos we can just carry on without you.

But this is how you are
Blowing up the small with hot air.
I thought you only wept
to make us wait on you.

I pity you pity you always
I pity you pity you
Cos you can’t act straight.

I pity you pity you always
(Damn) I pity you pity you
Cos we won’t take the bait.

Let go let go It’s not so bad.
Oh will you go easy?
Oh we can see without you doing that.
We know, we know, we know, we know, we know….
